Well, indeed there is!
Unlike those Hollywood stars of our parents’ era who maintained themselves well into their 50’s and 60’s but could hardly be considered “sex-symbols” at that point in their lives (other than Cary Grant….be still my heart!), a good number of middle-aged Boomer stars are both in excellent condition and still very sexy!
So, here they are; Boomer celebs who retain sex symbol status and without the use of cosmetic surgery, or any other enhancements, from youngest to oldest:
George Clooney: who was born in 1961 making him 50 years old
The following stars were born in 1958, so they’re 53 years old:
Angela Bassett: you may know her best from her Oscar nominated portrayal of Tina Turner in "What's Love Got To Do With It" or her other hit movie "How Stella Got Her Groove Back."
Andie MacDowell: I loved her in “Green Card” with Gerard Depardieu and she looks like she’s practically not aged a bit since then….
Michelle Pfeiffer: that woman just doesn’t age….period….
Sharon Stone: She has spoken out adamantly against the use of cosmetic surgeries
Born in 1956, making them 55 years old are:
Kim Cattrall: Best known for her role as promiscuous single Samantha in "Sex and the City," – isn’t that amazing, a 55 year old woman still able to pull off a role that even 20 years ago would have been handed off to a much younger actress: and
Bo Derek: Remember her from the 1979 film “10”? Well she was born 1956 and is still looking maaahvelous! She too eschews cosmetic enhancements, particularly the surgical kind.
Born 1954, so they’re the same age as me at 57:
Christie Brinkley: The long-time model and Billy Joel love object - she has a face for Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues, I have a face for radio….
Denzel Washington: Like Clooney, also requires no further explanation….
Richard Gere: He was born 1949, making him the ripe old age of 61 and still lookin’ good!
So, although these fellow Boomers were clearly blessed with great genes for which they can take no credit, they have taken their assets and adeptly maintained and expanded on them, for which they can take full credit, and from which the rest of us can learn.
